Wow!! Wow!! Wow!!! From the initial communication to the check out process everything was seamless. It was my first time I ever rented a home and was so nervous about the process. The Poole's answered every email diliengtly and efficiently, and trust me I sent them a ton of emails. It was a smooth process booking the home and an amazing weekend experience. The Poole's got the contract sent right away and were very patient in anticipation of receiving the payment. The home was immaculate, cozy and beautifully decorated. The pictures do the beauty of the home no justice. The owners are amazing people!! They were in direct communication with me throughout the whole process. They were extremely accommodating from the initial Inquiry all the way to making sure that we made it home safely after check out. They even had home baked cookies left for all the guests. Every person that joined us for our two night stay was immensely pleased with the home and the price of the home. They couldn't believe that we were in this beautiful home for such an amazing price. We would've stayed the additional night if it weren't for prior arrangements. We can't wait to go back!!
We just got back from an 8 night stay at The carpenter House. We are a family of 7 adults. First let me say, the location is perfect for sightseeing in the Amish Country.It is just outside the town of Strasburg, a charming example of a quaint Pennyslvania location, on a very peaceful street.The farmhouse is filled with beautiful antiques and modern conveniences. The furniture is comfortable and the rooms are very large.There is a gorgeous dining room, which we never used, because there is an enormous screened porch with table and chairs, sofas and rocking chairs ,which overlooks the in-ground swimming pool. Our children are adults, but with all the pool toys, they were laughing and splashing like children. The owner of this property has gone to great detail in providing the ambiance of a historic farmhouse with the most beautiful decorations you can imagine. The kitchen is top-shelf, the bathrooms are lovely. Everyone commented on the comfortable beds, complete with beautiful handmade quilts. There are 2 huge living rooms, outfitted with tv's, games, books--anything you would need to be entertained. We rented this home more than 6 months in advance, and the owner was so accommodating and professional. It was a wonderful vacation, and we would definitely stay at the Carpenter House again.
